 Fry in low flame until the raisins increase in size and cashew nuts turn golden brown.
2)Now add the sooji/semolina and saute until it turns into golden color(nice aroma should come from the sooji) in low flame.Make sure to stir in between or else it will burn.
  
3)Add the sugar and mix well .Adding sugar with sooji prevents it from turning into lumps when we add the water/milk.
